God’s Gift Achiuwa
April 28, 2011 by USA Post
God’s Gift Achiuwa, It’s official, a gift from God Achiuwa has declared his intentions to play for San Juan and being close to home he has had in recent years in New York.
It seemed likely that the favorite of all time, were the local team, which had begun its first contract (of 3) was raised Catholic, and San Juan, even delete another forward who was recruited to make sure he knew who was room.
UW came late in the recruiting process and was able to do as one of the last two options. However, University of Washington seemed to realize that it would take a visit from bad to San Juan and things did not work out for God’s gift Achiuwa not play for the Johnnies.
A lot of hype was made for this player, and while he was an underrated player, was not a first line player. He was not going to be an incredible presence message. In fact, I had the feeling that if he did come to Montlake was only a matter of time before people began to feel frustrated with their inability to consistently make a shot, even around the basket.
This is what I said about him on Twitter after seeing his band play:
(Remember that it is Twitter, only has 140 characters, so that’s why it’s a bit choppy)
Gift of God is physically ready to compete in D1. He is big and in shape and know how to use their strength in the paint. He works hard with a constant motor. With this comes a downside, most of his baskets came on the possibilities of second to fourth. In JC was able to keep trying. That will not happen at the next level. He has a good shot; he was able to write a 3 and was very fluid in the line. For a big man, it’s awesome. Finally, played the entire game, even the resistance of OT, nice. There were a few defensive blocks. At the next level will have to increase his FG pct.
Brad Winton JucoRecruiting.com also told me that he was never very high in the gift of God, many people who were simply meeting expectations. Winton also had this to say about him:
It’s a good player. I think it would sound coming off the bench for a few minutes each half. Play hard. Just not sure if you are willing to contribute as much as people think they can. Bigs are hard to get though.
All that means that while we were lost in a recruit well, that would have helped the program would not really be ‘God’s gift to the UW, it would be a role player who probably would come off the bench.
The other recruits Vashil Richard Peters and Fernandez would come in play with 4 years and both have a lot of potential. Almost every major university in the country is recruiting Richard Peters. He comes from a strong and may find himself becoming 4-star recruits.
